Bid­vest Sup­ports QASA

Premier Magazine (South AFrica) - - Contents -

QASA is very grate­ful to Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge for the in­vest­ment in the Quad­para As­so­ci­a­tion of South Africa (QASA) skills de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme.

Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge has a long­stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with QASA, and this is the sec­ond year that they have in­vested in the QASA skills de­vel­op­ment pro­gramme to en­sure the em­ploy­ment project has a mean­ing­ful im­pact. The fund­ing from Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge has been utilised to up­skill QASA mem­bers, which led to main­stream em­ploy­ment, in­tern­ships, and learn­er­ships. Due to this pro­gramme, the lives of many peo­ple in QASA have changed for the bet­ter.

The con­tin­u­ous sup­port from Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge en­sures that QASA mem­bers are be­ing skilled and moulded for op­por­tu­ni­ties that should arise. This rings true for three QASA mem­bers who, through the skills im­parted to them from QASA, re­cently se­cured main­stream em­ploy­ment in very lu­cra­tive sec­tors. Phil­len­dren Chetty was re­cently em­ployed by Netwize and is now a CCTV Op­er­a­tor. Chetty has men­tioned that work­ing has changed his life, and with­out the op­por­tu­ni­ties of­fered by QASA, he would be at home with no fu­ture plans. Mbali Mdlet­she is an­other mem­ber who se­cured em­ploy­ment with Netwize. Mdlet­she could not stop say­ing thank you to QASA for this op­por­tu­nity, and says that she was get­ting so tired of go­ing from in­ter­view to in­ter­view with no re­sults, and now the dream of se­cur­ing em­ploy­ment has been achieved. De­gra­tia Mo­raila is an­other amaz­ing mem­ber of QASA who re­cently se­cured em­ploy­ment with Pick n Pay through the QASA In­tern­ship pro­gramme. Same as Chetty, Mo­raila says this is a life changer for her and she will en­sure that she makes full use of this op­por­tu­nity.

The con­tri­bu­tion made by Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge is far greater than just up­skilling QASA mem­bers. Through this ini­tia­tive, QASA mem­bers gain the con­fi­dence and dig­nity they need to live their lives to their full po­ten­tial. QASA looks for­ward to build­ing and main­tain­ing this re­la­tion­ship with Bid­vest Pre­mier Lounge.
